I've been around case modding for a long time, so it's always an enjoyable moment when I get to see a type of mod hit the mainstream by way of a major case manufacturer. With their latest announcement from Computex 2016, Thermaltake is looking to do this exact thing with the wall-mounted Core P3 computer case.
The Core P3 ATX Wall Mount Panoramic Viewing LCS Chassis really puts your rig on display for the world to see. Your wiring game better be on point! This chassis (can't really call this a case since it doesn't encase the system in anyway) is fully open, featuring only a large acrylic window to protect your system. It's not nearly as basic as you may think though, with Thermaltake placing an emphasis on modular design and the "Maker Movement" in this design.
The Core P3 is highly customizable, staring with its placement layout. You can of course mount this on your wall, but there's also a stand to mount the chassis either horizontally or vertically. You can also mount your video card vertically using the included x16 riser. Finally, the case can support multiple hard drives hidden away, or a radiator up to 420mm in size.
Thermaltake is doing something really interesting with the Core P3; they are trying to dip their toes into the maker market. If you need any particular accessories for the chassis, you can download them from 3dmakers.thermaltake.com and print them using a 3D printer. There's already several useful printouts available there, and with community involved, much more will come.
Thermaltake didn't provide any solid availability date for the Core P3 chassis, saying it'll be ready for Q2 of this year. We're already into the final month of that quarter. No pricing has been announced either. However, the press release below has plenty of info.
